Underwood denies Simpson feud

Country star Carrie Underwood has laughed off reports of a feud with Jessica Simpson, insisting she has nothing against the singer/actress for dating her ex Tony Romo.

The two stars were alleged to have fallen out after Underwood insinuated she was still in touch with American footballer Romo, two years after their split.

In a recent interview with Allure magazine, Underwood insisted Romo was equally keen to keep in contact, adding: "The phone will ring and it'll be him, and I'll maybe not answer."

Simpson, who has been dating Romo since late last year, subsequently hit back at Underwood's comments, claiming her boyfriend has never called his ex.

Underwood is shrugging off reports the two are embroiled in a war of words.

She says, "I met her once and she seemed really nice so I don't have a feud with anybody."
